Illyria: The Emperor's New Clothes

Illyria: The Emperor's New Clothes


The Emperor is a lovely man, but he’s not the best judge of character, and is often surrounded by idiots. What keeps him sane is the monthly Grand Parade at which he wears his newest outfit. When two swindlers spin a yarn and everyone is taken in, what price will he have to pay? Will the new clothes they make really enable him to weed out the idiots in his palace? Or will he end up losing his crown jewels? All will be revealed in Illyria’s cheekiest ever show!

Gates open at 6.30pm. Performance approx. 1 hour 40 minutes including 20 minute interval.
Please bring own seating/rug, warm clothes and a picnic.

In case of adverse weather, the performance will take place at Theatr Ardudwy. All tickets are non-refundable. Cash only at the door.
